Treefort Music Fest makes final lineup announcement

Is the city of Boise on board with year two of Treefort Music Fest? Like, duh! Mayor Dave Bieter even makes an awesomely nerdy cameo in the fourth, newly released “Road to Treefort” promotional video. (Sporty bike helmet, mayor.)

The quirky, inventive video is Treefort’s final lineup announcement (organizers swear!), bringing the artist tally for the March 21-24 festival to more than 240 acts.

Notable names among this last revelation included The Walkmen, Brother Ali, Typhoon and K.Flay, who was a hit at last year’s Treefort.
